"When eighth-grader San Lee moves to a new town and a new school for the umpteenth time, he doesn't try to make new friends or be a loner or play cool. Instead he sits back and devises a plan to be totally different. When he accidentally answers too many questions in World History on Zen (only because he just had Ancient Religions two schools ago) all heads turn and San has his answer: he's a Zen Master. And just when he thinks everyone (including the cute girl he can't stop thinking about) is on to him, everyone believes him . . . in a major Zen way"
I must be honest, I only picked this one up because I needed a "Z" for the 2014 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge and this was the only one that got me mildly interested. However, I am very glad I read this one because from the very beginning I knew I was going to like San. He screws up a lot, but he's a sweet kid, with a lot of pain in his heart. BesIdes, who wouldn't take the opportunity to start over as a different person?
This was a light, fun, heart-warming book and I will read more from this author!
